4 February 2013 - Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

This might be the campiest song ever released. It was, however, intended to be that way, as a slight jab at the fashion industry.

But it's also a well-constructed song, with a cold ending, which is hard to pull off.  Instantly quotable, instantly danceable, instantly posable.  Musically, it's complex, which makes sense, because the Fairbrass brothers at the center of Right Said Fred are accomplished musicians outside of the band.

Recently, the brothers have redone the song, with slight musical changes.  See if you notice.  They kept the cold close, though.
